Reviews for the MSI Megabook GT725

80% MSI GT725-087UK review
Source: PC Advisor English

The MSI GT725 is - literally and figuratively - a bit lighter than its beefy 17in gaming laptop competitors. And that's not necessarily a bad thing: the price is a little lower than the cost of many other desktop replacements, while the hefty 3.5kg case is a shade more manageable than many. What matters more in this case is that it provides strong performance for a reasonable £1,117. This MSI laptop offers good gaming performance but makes some missteps with its muted screen and its awkward keyboard. Overall, the GT725 is a competent gaming and entertainment laptop. It'll fill other roles when needed, but it seems like itself only when you're shooting 3D aliens or playing movies.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4850:

Based on the desktop HD 4850 but with slower clock rates, the Radeon HD 4850 features DirectX 10.1 support with a relatively large 256 bit memory bus.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.


Q9000:

Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.
